    Looking good. I hope you get a vinyl guy to do a new dealership sticker for you. That is awesome that it was still there.

    Very nice! Nothing like original sheet metal, especially in that condition.

    I did not replace them... the doors shut effortlessly and have no movement whatsoever...is this a must for an unknown reason...50k miles and sat for 30 plus years with doors closed...if I should I will...
